Here on Benjamin Street, we love to share a good story
with the neighbors. We sing songs, swap ideas, and shape sentences till our
arms tire and fingertips blister. We hope to enlighten and entertain, providing
readers with that charismatic something extra that turns a good book into a
great read and a must have. On Benjamin Street, we live by the glow of the
neighborhood light, trusting readers and booksellers to tell us what they want.
We understand cult audiences and the grand passions that drive great
obsessions. We know how to satisfy that hunger for authenticity, ranging from
real-life stories about close encounters with angels to chronicling the magic
that is Bruce Springsteen. Here on Benjamin Street, we understand the meaning
of the quest, and we’ll provide maps and tools and secret decoder rings so that
the adventure can continue.
We’re big believers in laying a good foundation on which to
build the house, figuring that a poor foundation is a bad investment should the
house collapse. One brick at a time, over and over and over again till madness
or success ensues. Rome, as they say, wasn’t built in a day, and we’re
certainly not built for speed anymore. Here on Benjamin Street, we believe in
our friends and community and that good will is a useful power for fighting
darkness, though electric bulbs may help too.
Led uncertainly by Martin Connors, who many years ago long
before there was even an Internet created VideoHound and founded Visible Ink
Press (where he served as publisher for 17 years), Benjamin Street is a place
where friends will gather and share great stories and a sense of discovery.
Happy to be back in the game, we’ll do our best to publish well-designed,
thoughtful, unconventional books about important topics like pop culture, the
paranormal, religion, science, and politics.
